3. Remind yourself: “I am not alone.”
We live in an over-sharing world. From snapshots of people’s “first time dining out since COVID!”, to monthly images cataloging babies’ growth, people aren’t afraid to share glimpses of their personal lives online.
So, why are so averse to sharing how we’re actually doing in real life? It’s another dangerous idea, that we must grin and bear whatever weight we’re carrying, expecting ourselves to do it alone.
Whenever our team works through a new campaign concept, story idea, or helping our clients navigate any sort of challenge, we work through it together. There is time for independent thinking, which is still important. But rarely do we try solving problems alone. By working together, we lean into each other’s creative thinking and drive stronger solutions — benefitting our development personally just as much as professionally.
Our lives, and our health, is no different. Whatever we may be navigating, it’s important to unmask ourselves (no double entendre intended), dig into what stressors are weighing us down, and utilize resources available to help.
Redefining health is a creative journey that begins with each one of us — taking small steps every day that ladder up to create real change.
